A 53-year-old man has been charged with manslaughter in connection with a death last week in Puvirnituq, Que.

The Kativik Regional Police Force was called to a residence in the community last Thursday where police say there was a fight between two men.

A 34-year-old man was injured and taken to the health centre where he later died.

Investigators from the Sûreté du Québec travelled to the Nunavik community of about 1,700 residents the next day. They arrested a 53-year-old man.

The man, whose name has not been released, was scheduled to appear in court in Amos, Que., Monday.
